Affenpinscher

Wanna know what I really want for Christmas? An Affenpinscher. I saw this dog on the National Dog Show on Thanksgiving, and his ugly little face stole my heart. Just look at him! I might choose one without chach in his hair, though.

Why do I love this dog? Well, roughly translated, Affenpinscher means "monkey dog" in German. This is awesome. In French, however, the dog's description translates to "mustachioed little devil." This is for sure the dog I want. Monkey devil with a mustache? Yes, please!

So I don't really want one of these dogs for Christmas, but I do want to spread the love for this mostly unheard-of breed. Go, little Affenpinscher, go!

Affenpinscher - A+!

Perhaps what troubles me most is that you spent Thanksgiving watching the National Dog Show.

I was right there with ya watching! We always watch, even though Tifa hates them. She will turn her ass to the TV! Schnauzers were created a long long time ago from Affenpinschers and a little poodle...

Yes. I'm a geek, but I can tell you about all the breeds. I worked at a dog store!

I like the stuff in his hair. Is that a puppy or is it full grown?

I think this one is a puppy, but the big ones are super cute, too.

This dog is cute. It's far cuter than that ugliest dog ever that died recently. I wonder if he was ever in a dog show?

I own an affenpinscher and i must say my "kurby" is the absolutely most lovable, comical little monkey i have ever had the joy to encounter. I swear he is a little comedian in a fur suit! One of the funniest things he has taught himself is breakdancing. Remember how the kids used to spin on their backs? When kurby gets excited he will put a shoulder on the ground and his butt in the air and spin in circles! He literally has us in tears on a daily basis with his funny little antics. I don't think i would ever want any other kind of dog.

I too have a tiny little affenpinscher named Mae. She is funnier than most people I know...which is sad for the people i know. But she stole my heart the second I laid eyes on her. Shes likes to jump in circles...it almost looks like shes doing a mid-air cartwheel. Everyone stops me in the streets to ask me what she is...and then they ask if they can have her.

Because I like to show her off, you can see how precious she is here http://www.dogster.com/dogs/553085

I have been trying to get photos of this sweet looking breed for our pet insurance website. But I haven't managed to find too many.
